Google Google CEO Larry Page was interviewed on Charlie Rose recently, and there was certainly some interesting stuff in there. Sadly, the interview suffers from the curse of modern journalism in that it was all a bit timid and civil (no truly harsh and confronting questions), but despite that, it's still a good watch. Two quotes from Page really stood out to me.

"I don't think Page and Brin could have anticipated - nor wanted to - that they'd be facing legal assaults from the largest incumbents in technology."

Really? If so, they'd be the most incompetent tech CEOs in history. Of course the competition would resort to legal assaults. They could not anticipate the specifics of the legal assaults, but the idea that the competition would quietly agree to lose if bested by superior technology is extremely naive.
